Reverse HTTP Starter Description

Reverse HTTP Starter Free Download.

Connects to the URL (http://...) of a text file and checks it for keywords at a specified interval. If a keyword is found, a corresponding batch (*.bat) or executable (*.exe) file is run locally on your computer - usually to perform a certain task. Of what use is this? Well, if you want a certain application or script to be performed on a remote computer only when you want, then all you need to do, is upload a text file (or marker) to the URL and once this program checks it for keywords, the task will be run on your remote machine (the same one as, 'Reverse HTTP Starter' is running on).

Of course, this means you will need to have access to a web server where you can upload the text file. A good example where this program comes in handy is when using an application such as VNC. If your workplace is behind a firewall and you need to control your work PC from home, you will usually need to establish a 'reverse' connection for it to work. This means that the listening daemon runs on your home computer but the connection is initiated from the work PC. How are you going to initiate the connection if you're not at work?

Using, 'Reverse HTTP Starter', you just keep the program running in your system tray at work and have it periodically (say, every 180 seconds) check your HTTP server for a marker (the text file). When it finds the keyword(s), it executes the batch file(s) you have specified, which in turn starts an SSH client for port tunnelling (like Putty) and the VNC Viewer. So, you are able to use your work computer from home, even though it is behind a corporate firewall.

RHS continues checking the URL at the specified intervals until you stop it so it will constantly be on the lookout for your, 'signal'. There are also many other uses of this program. You can get it do just about anything on your computer, 'at will' by checking with your HTTP server that is available to you from anywhere in the world.
